Encountering God in the Midst of COVID-19



“But thanks be to God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ. ”

— 1 Corinthians 15:57

COVID-19: While our disciple makers were distributing masks to combat COVID-19 transmission, they met a man who has had sinus issues for about three years. They asked if they could pray for him, to which he agreed. After praying, the disciple makers left their phone number with him.

And two weeks later they received a call from the man. He asked if the disciple makers would visit again because his health had dramatically improved since they prayed for him. He told them that doctors had given him medicine, which did not help. Neither did the Mullah’s prayers. The man said the disciple makers’ prayer was the first thing that has ever helped him.

“By stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus. ”

— Acts 4:30-31


COVID-19: The man inquired what it was that they prayed since during the prayer, he felt his body get hot and saw a bright light in the room. The man said it was a miracle.

COVID-19: The disciple makers replied that they had prayed in the name of Jesus and that Jesus is more than a prophet—He is the Son of God. As the man inquired about Jesus, the disciple makers began sharing scriptures about healing and the prodigal son with the man, his family and extended family, including the grandfather.

After reading the Bible stories, they all wanted to receive Jesus. To God alone be the glory. Currently, the disciple makers are sharing more God stories with this man and his family, discipling them on their God journey.

“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. ”

— Romans 10:17



  • For this man and his family, and others we have encountered like this, to be discipled well so they will be disciples who make disciples who make disciples.

  • For this man and his family to obey the Living God and share the stories with others.

  • For more opportunities for our disciple makers to share the truth and power of God—the One who heals and saves.

  • For our disciple makers to be bold and courageous for Christ and obey Him.

We believe the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 Peter 1:21)

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent who has revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Luke 3:22)

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father where He intercedes for us, in His present rule as Head of the Church, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:31)

We believe in the creation of mankind in God’s image, and the fall of man, resulting in universal guilt and total depravity; and the necessity, therefore, of redemption and restoration; that all men and women are lost spiritually and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ is necessary for regeneration by the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 2:17)

We believe salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life. (Luke 24:47, John 3:3)

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life in the presence of our Lord, and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment. (Matthew 25:46, Mark 9:43-48)

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church, which has the duty to preach the Gospel to every person. (Ephesians 1:22-23, Ephesians 2:22)

We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives, and to the ministry of teaching, preaching, the prophetic, the apostolic, and evangelism. (Ephesians 4:11-13)

We believe in upholding the ordinances of the church of water baptism and holy communion.

The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. Thus, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, Acts 10:47,48, Romans 6:4)

The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements—bread and the fruit of the vine—, is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4), a memorial of His suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26), and a prophecy of His second coming (1 Corinthians 11:26), and is enjoined on all believers “till He comes!”
